asked the Minister of Health whether he could give the number of patients in mental hospitals during each of the past five years who have received malarial treatment for general paralysis of the insane; and how many of such patients are deemed to have recovered as a result of such treatment?
§ Sir K. WOOD
As the answer involves a number of figures, I will, with the hon. Member's permission, circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
§ Following is the answer:
§ The numbers of patients in mental hospitals who have received malarial treatment during the last five years for which particulars are available are as follow:
§ Over 10 per cent. of those treated in each of these years were discharged "recovered" within the year. Complete information is not at present available as to the total number of recoveries among those treated over the period of five years.
